Tight and nice first edition of several years' worth of editorial cartoons by this three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist, interspersed with his lucid commentaries. Interesting and huge inscription on front flyleaf to the children of Illinois senator Adlai E. Stevenson III: "For Adlai IV / Lucy / Katie / Warwick / from / Herb Block / and / 'Lady J' / with love & love." Handsome calligraphic inscription (black ballpoint) is NOT in Herblock's hand, while he signs boldly in blue fineline.
